STOP AND THINK – Enjoy the little things in life … for one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things. (Robert Brault, opera singer and author)

Someone else has said, “Stop to smell the roses.” We often pass over little things that mean a lot at the moment—the smile of a baby, the kind word of an encourager, the moving passage of a book recently read. We so often focus on the big events of life that we overlook the smaller things until we look back and remember what was most meaningful.

Better a little with the fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil (Proverbs 15:16). Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice (Proverbs 16:8).
